TikTeck has recently debuted its Smart Light Bulb, a discounted and quality smart home product aimed to disrupted the smart home market. Priced at $9.99 the bulb is a Bluetooth enabled, multicolored, energy efficient smart LED light bulb that can be controlled by a smartphone or tablet via the TikTeck App.
At $9.99, TikTeck’s smart bulb features a laundry list of capabilities from color customization to automated scheduling and presence monitoring and is considerably more affordable than other smart bulbs on the market including models from name brands such as Philips, Hue, GE Link, LIFX LED and TCP Smart Lighting.

Bluetooth mesh technology means you can manage up to 32 separate lights (up to 64 bulbs) in a single home. In addition, timer settings will save to a certain bulb, even if Bluetooth is not connected allowing users to preset times of the day/night for the bulbs to turn on or off (coming home from work, on vacation, etc.) The network will self extend and interconnect lights from a single device.
Each bulb is customizable and more than 16 million colors are supported, as well as warm an cool white light. Every color is dimmable. A built in memory function retains the last color or program mode. When playing music from the app, the bulb will automatically change color.
